Master Cat Cory Milles explains the key elements of each story beat of the Blake Snyder Beat Sheet as he breaks down the 15 beats of 3 moviesBlack Panther, Coco, and Lady Bird—in 15 informative videos, one per beat.

In each video, you’ll see how the writers structured their very different stories in a very similar fashion.

Also included in our Crash Course is a downloadable PDF of the Save the Cat!® Essential Vocabulary, including definitions of each beat and such terms as Six Things That Need Fixing, Stasis = Death, Promise of the Premise, Moment of Clarity, and many more.
